This winter Mary Zimmer (formerly of the Madison, WI-based metal act Luna Mortis) & LA-based singer/songwriter VK Lynne take you into their homes and into their heads for their new web series. Check out a teaser trailer for the new "Tracking the Trade" series in the player below. The musicians have also released the following statement regarding the upcoming project:
“We’ve been wanting to do a project together for a long time. However, other commitments and distance hampered our efforts- until now. We sat down to discuss our collaboration on a new song. Via Skype, we began talking about our experiences in the music business, good and bad…and discovered that the biggest obstacle to making music… is lack of knowledge.
"In today’s environment, labels are expecting more and more of their artists, and indie/DIY acts are becoming plentiful. Whatever route you choose, you will need to keep your head, and hope that it is full of solid information about your creative and legal options, rights and responsibilities, both to yourself - and to those around you.
"We discovered that we both had a strong desire to share what we’d learned throughout our experiences, and show how it all applied to this project. Thus, ‘Tracking the Trade’ was born.
"In each episode, we will take our viewers through a step on our journey. How we did it, why we did it, and what we could do differently. This process will be interactive; if you want to know more about something, ask us! If we know, we’ll tell you. If we don’t know, we’ll find out. Likewise, we will turn to you for your thoughts and suggestions along the way.
"If all goes well, by the conclusion, we will have an awesome song, and we’ll all be better equipped to navigate this new music terrain - and get down to making more music with less confusion!" More...
